Gamarjobat – A shut up comedy from Japan @ Actor’s Studio, Bangsar Shopping Centre

3rd March – 19th March 2006
RM52 – RM92
Tuesday ~ Thursday 8PM, Friday 9PM, Saturday 3PM, 9PM Sunday 3PM, 8PM.

Gamarjobat is a silent comedy by 2 Japanese men. Not a single comprehensible word was spoken during the entire show. The sound effect, the lightning and the costumes fueled the entire show. And..
It was FUNNY with capitals!

The sound effect and lighting were very precise. It was as if it was programmed.

The show was divided into 2 parts, the first part being a slapstick-and-mime-like comedy and the second part is a silent play about a boxer. They even pulled some audience to perform with them. Some of the participants on the stage were entertaining as well 😀 We laughed non stop.

There was one part they played Doraemon’s theme song and one of the duo was mimicking Doraemon. Everyone laughed out loud except for the 4 Caucasians sitting in front of us… HOW CAN THEY NOT KNOW DORAEMON????

The show ended with a standing ovation. Yes, it was that good.

DJ Anatta & I – the Gamarjobats.

Catch DJ Anatta in action @ Club Pure, Melaka 11 March 2005! 😀

who pays for the first date?

a few of my guy friends recently commented that they have been on first dates with girls who look at them expectantly when the bill comes, without offering to pay for their share. they find it ….. not nice.
but as girls, if we are the ones asked out, must we offer to pay? is that the least we can or should do? i mean, we can pretend to take our purse out and pretend to want to look at the bill, right?
but if we do that, then the guys have to say, “oh that’s alright, this one is on me.” instead of, “hmm… yeah, your share is RM35 plus RM2 for tax….”
but funny thing is, my girl friends say i’m stupid when i offer to pay for my share. they tell me, “sheeesh, let him pay! he asked you out, so let him pay!”
this is really confusing.
so what exactly is the right etiquette for the girl, on her first and subsequent dates?
even when i do return the favour by buying the guy coffee later is considered a no no by my girl friends. but that’s what i do, just in case things never work out … and the guys won’t have a chance of accusing me of being a leech.
feedback please.

Arashiyama, Kyoto – Japan

It’s been a while since I blogged about my Japan

Arashiyama is famous for its fabulous view of Mt. Arashiyama and River Oi. It’s very popular among tourist. As a result, rows of souvenirs shops were built along River Oi.

Since Soba is famous in Kyoto, Jane and I decided to try it.

We ate at a restaurant upstairs of a souvenir shop and spent the rest of the evening there. We didn’t leave until sunset.

Bidor, Perak

Bidor, is a tranquil little town about 45 minutes away from the Ipoh, capital of Perak state.

Perhaps the most famous things in Bidor are the Chinese Chicken Biscuits and the Duck Noodles.

Since I had to travel to Taiping to attend Court, I stayed over at Grandpa and Forth Uncle’s place at Bidor. Granpa’s over 90 years old now. I was a little bit worried that when he sees me, he would say..”Who are you?”.
Fortunately, he didn’t. But he gave me a “who-are-you?” stare. I’m sure I will miss him after he’s gone :s

So after attending Taiping Court, I went back to Bidor to get some biscuits from the famous Pun Chun Chicken Biscuits and Restaurant.

My favourite!

As I was walking out from the restaurant, I saw a chap having a bowl of duck noodles. Although I had chee cheong fun, dunkit donuts and wantan mee prior to that, I decided to give the duck noodles a go.

I did a search on google and found that:- (Bidor no girls? :O!)

tried the Duck Noodles as well. Everyone gave positive comments about it. However, to me, although the duck and the soup were fantastic, the noodles were so-so. The noodles were first soaked in to hot water and thereafter mixed into the soup. Although this is a common method, I find this method made the noodles tasteless. They should use a different type of noodle i.e. min sin (long and short very fine Vermicelli.).
